Poem About Poems

M. T. Buckley

The sitting in a bar at three AM gesture
The look what America has done to me gesture
The scrofulous prophet gesture
The I can shit on you because I’m a poet gesture
The I will tell you all gesture
The there are infinite mysteries gesture
The fascination of generally worthless phenomena gesture
The see how I have suffered gesture
The impossibility of telling you anything gesture
The it’s all toothpaste commercials gesture

All of this must stop
It’s time for something entirely new

all of this must stop
it’s time for something entirely new
